I would go with a duo 2 or a speed passion v3 ,most people i know who tried the nemises have not had good luck with them. They are slower than most other motors.

Thanks for the tip. I read a lot of threads that support your view therefore, I canceled my order and went with a Fantom Racing Ion 2. It is based off of the Duo 2 motor.

You are so wrong! I know Jeff from Fantom personally and I have asked him that specific question. I think he would know the answer. If you don't believe me, send him an email yourself.

I have heard nothing but bad things about the nemesis motors. Get yourself a Duo1 and dont look back.

Very true however I have heard that the newer Duo's (1 and 2) are nit as good as the old ones... They tend to fail at much lower temps.

The common gun motor right now is the SP v3 but I quite like the new Orion's.
